    Take a normal blade and stick another sword on to its grip?
    Might want to extend the original grip to.

    Here's an double-bladed Eldar Power Sword:

    Yeh man,
    Your workign with chaos, go wild, use anythign and everything and yet nothing to base your sword on, use space marine sprues, eldar, kroot even, ork...perhaps not ork weapons....
    Get a peice of copper rod, or any stiff striaght long round peice of material and use that as your hilt and then jsut two same, or different sword, spear, anything blades.
    Dan.

    Yeah that might be a good idea.
    Maybe use two Chaos Power weapon swords as the blades?

    There was a very well converted chaplain / champion with a good DOuble-bladed sword in the gallery, I'll link it when I've found it.

    EDIT:
    Ah, here you are...

    The thing is you'll need a handle long enough to make it possible to use both blades. the one showed earlier seem a bit hard to use IMHO. Try wielding a broom or something to get a feeling for how far apart your hands has to be.

    God Luck

    Well would a bo staff work I have one of those. So basically I cold clip down a standard barers pole and just reposition that hand so it meets the other and glue one a sword blade to each end?

    Yeah that should work.
    And remeber, all weapons in WH is over-sized so if your looks large it won't be a problem (of course, there are large and Large weapons )

    You might want to give it more details, maybe want to add some Green stuff to make some bandanas hanging from the grip.
